Volunteering in Mozambique
The project we offer in Mozambique is geared towards the conservation of the country’s coral reefs and the huge array of marine life that rely on them as a habitat. Anyone with interests in marine biology or scuba diving should volunteer on the Marine, Whale Shark and Manta Ray Conservation project. You’ll help to protect this amazing ecosystem by monitoring the condition of the coral reefs and the wellbeing of the marine life that live there.
Nature loving volunteers should travel to the Limpopo National Park in their free time. This transfrontier park links Kruger National Park in South Africa, Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe and Limpopo National Park in Mozambique and covers an area of over a million hectares. Lions, elephants, rhino, hippos and giraffes occupy the park in great numbers, and make it an ideal location for a safari.
Tofo, where volunteers will be based, boasts of an astonishingly complex marine ecosystem. Use your free time to get to grips with the wealth of marine life on the Manta Reef in Tofo or travel further to one of Mozambique’s other famed dive sites like Kingfisher Reef in Inhambane. Visit the Surf Shack in Tofo for a surf lesson, to rent a kayak or even just to browse some of the locally made souvenirs they sell. Why not mingle with the locals in markets and cafes in Tofo and enjoy the paõ (Portuguese white bread rolls baked in wood-fired ovens in villages), peri peri chicken or the range of delicious fish on offer.
Volunteer in Mozambique and help to conserve the country’s extraordinary biodiverse ecosystems as well as responsibly enjoy everything they have to offer.
